Let's establish the baseline for our progress moving forward:
Over the last decade, federal efforts to address homelessness saw some success with the number of people experiencing homelessness decreasing slowly. At the start of the Administration of Donald Trump and the outset of the 115th United States Congress, the number of people who are homeless is 549,928. This is the baseline for judging the success of efforts to end homelessness in the new Administration and Congress.
